One of the distinctive characteristics of an education in the UNL College of Architecture is our focus on developing leaders in architecture design and planning; and in integration, innovation and collaboration. We have a rich history and tradition of leaders – leaders of firms, organizations, teams and communities. Examples of leadership are abundant in the college, administration, faculty, students and staff. What is it that defines the qualities of good leadership?  More
Last week was a week full of exciting events for Interior Design students. Nate Bicak and his IDES 301 Material Application students toured Yankee Hill Brick Company and had the opportunity to learn about the qualities of brick, its application in the built environment and the manufacturing process of bricks. The tour aligns with course objectives related to material quality and its effect on the atmosphere and experience of space, as well as attaining awareness and knowledge of material manufacturing and assembly methods.
Living Suburbia - one of the fourth-year Collaborative Studios - where design disciplines are blurred and students negotiate common ground through learning new methods and knowledge together. This studio is in its seventh week and instructors Emily Anderson and Kim Wilson are realizing Integrated Collaboration. It is so exciting to see Kelsey Miller, an interior design student, working alongside her team to understand how circulation, road networks and infrastructure around and on the site influence site development.  More-

Game Day Reminder

For those of you not familiar with the university's pregame planning, football game days provide challenges in the security of buildings used for academic, research and business operations on City Campus. Many fans would like to use university facilities for breaks, restrooms or sightseeing.  Some even see the possibility of accessing our buildings as an opportunity to steal computers, etc. Common practice is that all buildings near the stadium are locked about three to five hours before kickoff. We ask your help in keeping the buildings on City Campus, particularly those close to Memorial Stadium or along the main walkways to the stadium, locked and secured. Please avoid using the building in the hours before kickoff and help us keep unauthorized people out. Thank you,  

Owen Yardley
Chief of Police
